dollars that were given away as part of the obama administration's stimulus plan, money that the government promised would transform our rail system. it was a very ambitious plan, no doubt about it, when it was first announced. the president, vice president, ray lahood, all of the white house announcing a $13 billion plan to bring high-speed rail to america. listen. >> imagine whisking through towns at speeds over 100 miles an hour. walking only a few steps to public transportation. and ending up just blocks from your destination. imagine what a great project that would be to rebuild america. >> that was the idea. sounded great. bullet trains literally whisking passengers between american cities. the president outlining his plan to make it all happen. well, $8 billion in stimulus money to start and $1 billion a year thereafter to match local projects. keeping them honest now. it is now three years later and we can't find any high-speed rail that's actually been built. certainly not on this farmland in california, an area tapped as a high-speed train route. you'll see fie
, t.j. this is certainly a setback for the obama administration. the white house sharply criticizing this ruling and pointing to the fact that presidents going back 150 years have engaged in appointments, recess appointments. ronald reagan made more than 200. george w bush made more than 100. at issue in this instance is the senate technically in recess when they are in a pro forma session. pro forma means that senators aren't really here. they're not getting any work done. but they are gaveling into session every few days. the obama administration has argued that means that the senate is in recess. this court ruled otherwise and disagreed with the obama administration. republicans are praising this ruling. today they are saying it was the right ruling and that president obama really engaged in overreach when he made those appointments. so to your second question, t.j., what happens now, at this point in time the justice department not weighing in on what it will do next. but if you talk to legal analysts, they believe that the administration will take this to the supreme court. so t
of politics involved in all this as well, right? >> there is tons of politics. the obama administration has been saying that we really need this power of recess appointments because over the past 2, 3, 4, 5, years, congress has gotten, the republicans in congress have gotten far more partisan. they've gotten much, much more aggressive about preventing confirmation of nlrb appointees and of judicial appointees. and i'm sure that many in the obama administration are really tremendously up set by this decision because it really might seriously block their ability to name the people that they feel under the constitution they have the right to nominate. >> all right, steven greenhouse of the "new york times," thanks so much for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> brown: coming up-- location reports from two newshour correspondents: margaret warner in jerusalem, and ray suarez in davos, switzerland. plus, the advances against islamist rebels in mali; zero waste in san francisco; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: president obama chose his
little improvement. what is the obama administration or transportation department have to say about this? >> well, you know, this was the first project under this high-speed rail initiative that was completed. and when it was completed, ray lahood, the transportation secretary, was out there just praising that, again, that it came in on budget, came in on time. he said it will move more goods more efficiently, create jobs for the economy up in vermont. and it did increase speeds just a little bit. but it did increase speeds. nothing was said about the fact that this is not high-speed rail. >> you say even more money is going to vermont for high-speed rail. why is more money being spent on the project? >> well, they're still working on this same line. basically another $8 million is going to be spent improving the track on this very train route from what is now the end of the line up to canada. eventually they want to reconnect montreal to this line, thinking that somehow or another, that is going to increase the travel along this line. but again, vermont says, you will never have the hig
" with the obama administration, who are staying anonymous because they fear retribution or fear from the white house. this whole thing just seems off, right? i mean there are obviously two intentions with setting it up like this. they're trying to convey the impression that this is a white house who attacks and tears up anybody who disagrees with them. that is the way the right likes to think about this white house, that is the way they operate. they may be more effective if they did, but that is not what they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a right-wing group, you're trying to look like liberals and we can tell. that does it for us, we'll see you monday night. now it is time for "the last
